    Question Mitrofanoff Leakage


    I just registered for this, and while I searched the forum have not really found anything that relates to it 100%. Thank you for helping me out.

    So, since I was 12 I had a mitrofanoff (augmented bladder, with large intestine) and use a 12 Tiemann catheter.
    I have a little-bit of leakage from the stoma (appendix to the bladder) and would like to know what are my options. It has been going on for quite a while now, and while it does not interfere much with my everyday life, it ruins my shirts and T-shirts sometimes (I have to wear padding or can't wear bright colors) and can cause discomfort for anyone being with me.

    Is there a possibility that I might not need to have a surgery? I'd like to resolve it without as much interference as possible.

    Could it be caused by the following?
    - Tiemann catheter, hurting the appendix.
    - Excessive consumption of coffee.

    Also, besides washing out the bladder with solution, what might reduce the amount of mucus? Had a stone removal 2 months ago, and don't want to relive that. The docs said I should irrigate every 3 days, is that plausible or could I make it once a week?

    Sorry for the barrage of questions, and thank you very much for your help.
